Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from George Jefferson, 12 January 1801

From George Jefferson

Richmond 12th. Janr. 1801.

Dear Sir

You will observe from your acct which I forward herewith, that you are not charged with the 50$: which I some time ago paid for you; this I omitted because I did not like there should be any appearance of mystery in pecuniary matters betwixt us. The order therefore I return inclosed.

If you do not choose it should remain until I have the pleasure of seeing you—it will not now be inconvenient to you to remit me the amount in a bank bill, as heretofore.

I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt.

Geo. Jefferson

RC (MHi); at foot of text: “Thos. Jefferson esqr. Washington”; endorsed by TJ as received 16 Jan. and so recorded in SJL.

George Jefferson omitted the $50 he paid to James T. Callender in October 1800 (see TJ to George Jefferson, 24 Oct. and George Jefferson to TJ, 3 Nov. 1800).
